After my aunt, Ruth Komis, died in the fall of 2002, I found that she had collected and pasted so now very faded news clippings from the The Jimplicute, Scott City, MO, and pasted them on pages which she was keeping writings of her mother, Edna Drexler.
These documents are very difficult to read because they are so faded.
However, I have been retyping them into documents and making them available to other family members by posting them on this Internet page.
Many include memories from the very early 1900s of Scott City.

Letter #-01- published in the 1980s by Edna Drexler

  • Letter to the Editor

    The Jimplicute, Scott City, MO 63754

     

    Dear Editor,

     

    My memories go back to the early days of our town (Fornfelt). The year was 1907. Sunday School Classes were held on a little white frame building on a hillside east of the home of William Dunger, senior.

    The weather was beautiful this Easter 1907. It seemed that everyone celebrated Easter services then than now. Larger numbers of young people attended the Sunday School Class. As I recall a Mr. Rogers taught the class. Those persons attending the class were Jack Estes, Oscar Estes, Nannie McGaugh, Emma McGaugh, Eva Smith, Lillian Vasterling, Clara Ferguson, and Lois Smith.

    Years passed and the little white building on the hillside was either moved or torn away. The Broadway Methodist Church was built on Broadway and Lincoln Streets in Scott City.

    Sincerely,

    Edna Drexler
